Nursing and feeding support group

This space is suitable:

  • During pregnancy: you who are looking for the correct information to start breastfeeding, and to make informed choices that are good for your baby and for you; you who are wondering if you want to breastfeed; you who do not know if you want to do it this time, because the first one did not go well or because many of your friends tell you that they have experienced breastfeeding with difficulty.
  • It is also suitable for you who already have your baby: and you are breast-feeding it or with the bottle, or both at the same time; for you who are enjoying these first months and for you who feel tired, overwhelmed, full of doubts. To you who look at your baby every day and try hard to understand it.

Mothers, couples, they wonder:

  • “How do I know when and how to breast-feed?”
  • “My mom had no milk… Will I have any?”
  • “In case of a C-section, is it possible to breastfeed?”
  • “Can I eat legumes, strawberries or chocolate?”
  • “Can I take a medication if I have to?”

and so many other things, which they may find hard to say, about their emotions and how they feel breastfeeding or bottle-feeding.

Being together with other mothers and couples and being able to confront each other is very valuable for the possibility of sharing doubts, discoveries, questions and efforts.

Doula Valentina Ghilardotti is waiting for you at Kalila Community in a welcoming, soft environment, open to your questions, to accompany you in your search for information about breastfeeding, to listen to your breastfeeding experiences and to give you support.

To breathe into it, to tell us what works and what needs to be accommodated: in this case also providing references to the most suitable support figure for the specific case (Midwife and/or IBCLC Professional Consultant in Maternal Breastfeeding).

WHEN: usually once a month, on Thursday mornings…
(next dates Thursday 5 March, Thursday 2 April. Thursday 7 May) 11-13 am

CONTRIBUTION REQUIRED: 15 €
